Sea Level Change
A Reconciled Estimate of Ice-Sheet Mass Balance
There is good agreement between different satellite methods—especially in Greenland and West Antarctica—and that combining satellite data sets leads to greater certainty, and the mass balance of Earth’s polar ice sheets is estimated by combining the results of existing independent techniques.

UK Climate Projections science report: Marine and coastal projections
The UK has a long maritime heritage and the marine and coastal environment continues to play an important role in the national culture and economy. United Kingdom waters cover an area approximatelyExpand
Recent mass balance of polar ice sheets inferred from patterns of global sea-level change
Numerical predictions of gravitationally consistent patterns of sea-level change following variations in either the Antarctic or Greenland ice sheets or the melting of a suite of small mountain glaciers are presented. Expand
Modelling Holocene relative sea-level observations from the Caribbean and South America
Abstract Holocene data from the Caribbean and the Atlantic coast of South America have been critically assessed and a subset of the best quality data are presented. These data cover a largeExpand
On post-glacial sea level – II. Numerical formulation and comparative results on spherically symmetric models
SUMMARY Theoretical approaches to computing gravitationally self-consistent sea-level changes in consequence of ice growth and ablation are comprised of two parts. The first is a mapping betweenExpand
A new glacial isostatic adjustment model for Antarctica: calibrated and tested using observations of relative sea‐level change and present‐day uplift rates
We present a glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) model for Antarctica. This is driven by a new deglaciation history that has been developed using a numerical ice-sheet model, and is constrained toExpand
Space-Geodetic Constraints on Glacial Isostatic Adjustment in Fennoscandia
Analysis of Global Positioning System (GPS) data demonstrates that ongoing three-dimensional crustal deformation in Fennoscandia is dominated by glacial isostatic adjustment, and produces an Earth model that satisfies independent geologic constraints and bounds both the average viscosity in the upper mantle and the elastic thickness of the lithosphere.

Sea-level rise due to polar ice-sheet mass loss during past warm periods
This work concludes that during recent interglacial periods, small increases in global mean temperature and just a few degrees of polar warming relative to the preindustrial period resulted in ≥6 m of GMSL rise, which is currently not possible to make a precise estimate of peak G MSL during the Pliocene.

Postglacial sea-level change on a rotating Earth
SUMMARY We present a complete derivation of the equation governing long-term sea-level variations on a spherically symmetric, self-gravitating, Maxwell viscoelastic planet. This new ‘sea-levelExpand
